The Rally of the Lakes which takes place annually in Killarney on the first weekend of May is one of Ireland’s largest rallying events and always attracts a large and prestigious entry.
There is a separate event for young drivers, but the main focus is on the competitors in the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship, with the top drivers from Ireland north and south out in force on what must be one of the most scenic rally routes anywhere in the world. There is also a round of the West Euro Cup, bringing drivers in from further afield.
Some local people are less than fond of this event, which tends to attract an extremely lively following, a minority of who engage in somewhat over-enthusiastic enjoyment of the occasion which can lead to public drunkenness and occasionally the flaring up of trouble on the streets of Killarney – so be aware of this and careful if you plan to attend.
Date and details for 2020 subject to confirmation.

The Killarney & District Motor Club would like to extend our sympathies to the family and friends of Manus Kelly who was fatally injured during a tragic accident while competing in the Donegal International Rally on Sunday, June 23rd, 2019. Our thoughts are with his family and all affected at this time.
Manus was a true gentleman in motorsport, a great supporter of Killarney club events and a popular overall winner of the Cartell.ie Rally of the Lakes last year.
May he rest in peace.
